2008 Honda Civic LX 4dr Sedan (1.8L 4cyl 5A)


I purchased this car after owning a 1997 Toyota Camry. Except for a bum battery, I regretted trading that old car for the civic. The ride is rough in a civic, I got stuck numerous times in snow and ice -had to get every spec of snow from my drive way so that I wouldn't get stuck. The brakes are awful. They slip, and I can feel them vibrating when coming to a stop. I thought something was wrong until I took them to 2 mechanics, both of whom told me the brakes were fine. It was otherwise dependable, only stranded me once, after almost two years of long distance driving. But I'm tired of fearing winter so I'm trading it in for something that handles better. Got a decent price for it at least!

Best Features

The dashboard, easy to park, auxiliary input for my ipod, cruise control on steering wheel.

Worst Features

Better tires, breaks need improvement, better quality interior, needs to handle winter better than it does.
